This post is how I feel today.  With barely any sleep for the last few nights, today I have managed to get up, shower, nurture & nurse my little sickie, go to his appt, pick up his meds, wash diapers/bottles/pump parts, administer his medicines (begrudgingly...I worry about overmedicating and side effects, but want him to get better/ feel better), utilize this, and wear him down for lots of napping.  Normally this would set me off whining (yes I'm a complainer, its a terrible habit)...
But the weird thing is, as a parent you just deal.
I'm sure the caffeine is helping, but I think the mama bear in you just comes out and rise to the occasion- and because this is my reward...


  1. Aww, I hope you are all doing better now. It is SO exhausting caring for sick kiddos. But isn't it nice to know, as a parent, that you're never alone? So many out there are going through the exact same trials ;)

    I have a nose frieda but I am rather intimidated by it so I haven't tried it yet. Do you like it?

  2. Leigh,

    First can I say I LOVE your blog! Yes the nose frida is intimidating but it works much better then those bulbs and it seems to be less irritating on the little ones noses...and we've never gotten any "snot" where it shouldn't be, even one time forgetting to put in a filter! It all stays very close to the opening that touches their nose.
